Sabres' Bogosian using charitable foundation to raise money for Houston

The Sabres' Zach Bogosian is using his Bogo Bunch Foundation to help the people of Houston.

Bogosian, who created his nonprofit charity to benefit families affected by cancer, is expanding the focus after witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

"The money raised will go directly to the Houston Food Bank and will be used to provide food, water and supplies to children, families and seniors in the Houston area who have been affected by the storm," Bogosian wrote on the Go Fund Me page. "Thank you in advance for your support."

Bogosian created the fund Wednesday night, and in the first 11 hours it was one-quarter of the way toward its $20,000 goal.

Bogosian and former Winnipeg teammate Andrew Ladd donated $1,000 each, according to the page, while fellow Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe and Winnipeg blue-liner Jacob Trouba gave $500 each.
